  • Creflo Dollar: I've met peoplewho've been in sorrow for a
  • 00:00:09.022 --> 00:00:11.324
  • long time.
  • 00:00:11.357 --> 00:00:12.926
  • I've met people who would cometo church, shout at church, get
  • 00:00:12.959 --> 00:00:15.361
  • happy at church, go home, sitthere for about five minutes and
  • 00:00:15.395 --> 00:00:18.098
  • think about all that otherstuff and be filled with sorrow.
  • 00:00:18.131 --> 00:00:22.469
  • And instead of you bein' filledwith sorrow, be filled with
  • 00:00:22.502 --> 00:00:24.637
  • his Word.
  • 00:00:24.671 --> 00:00:26.539
  • If you'll be filled with hisWord, praise God, the sorrow
  • 00:00:26.573 --> 00:00:30.043
  • won't be able to attach itselfto your life and

  • Creflo: You know, we began thiswhole thing by talkin' about the
  • 00:01:45.952 --> 00:01:49.589
  • fact that, in church, you veryrarely hear sermons dealing with
  • 00:01:49.622 --> 00:01:54.360
  • your emotions, and I don't quiteknow why that is because that's
  • 00:01:54.394 --> 00:02:00.166
  • one thing that I can be sure oftoday is that everybody in here
  • 00:02:00.200 --> 00:02:03.503
  • has emotions, and God gave usemotions, but sometimes those
  • 00:02:03.536 --> 00:02:09.909
  • emotions have us, and we'vegot to understand that we have
  • 00:02:09.943 --> 00:02:15.949
  • authority over our emotions.
  • 00:02:15.982 --> 00:02:18.184
  • When you hear somebody who says,"I can't help how I feel," that
  • 00:02:18.218 --> 00:02:21.788
  • is a deception.
  • 00:02:21.821 --> 00:02:23.356
  • You can help how you feel.
  • 00:02:23.389 --> 00:02:24.991
  • God has given you authorityover your feelings, and you have
  • 00:02:25.024 --> 00:02:28.127
  • now--you must accept theaccountability for being in
  • 00:02:28.161 --> 00:02:33.800
  • charge over your emotions.
  • 00:02:33.833 --> 00:02:36.269
  • Say out loud, "I am--I haveauthority over my emotions."
  • 00:02:36.302 --> 00:02:40.273
  • Now, once again, we're notteaching you to try to be
  • 00:02:42.075 --> 00:02:45.411
  • emotionless and, you know, ifit's Christians, sometimes we go
  • 00:02:45.445 --> 00:02:49.182
  • too far to the left ortoo far to the right.
  • 00:02:49.215 --> 00:02:53.319
  • We don't want you toincrease phoniness.
  • 00:02:53.353 --> 00:02:55.888
  • We want you to know that youhave emotions, but the purpose
  • 00:02:55.922 --> 00:02:59.492
  • of the series is to help you tounderstand how to master those
  • 00:02:59.525 --> 00:03:04.664
  • negative emotions.
  • 00:03:04.697 --> 00:03:06.599
  • Now, there are negative emotionsthat occur in our life, and then
  • 00:03:06.633 --> 00:03:09.402
  • there are good emotionsthat occur in our lives.
  • 00:03:09.435 --> 00:03:12.305
  • And "emotion," we defined it as"feelings on the inside caused
  • 00:03:12.338 --> 00:03:18.144
  • by pain or pleasure tomove you in a direction."
  • 00:03:18.177 --> 00:03:22.548
  • "Feelings on the inside causedby pain or pleasure to move you
  • 00:03:22.582 --> 00:03:26.719
  • in a direction."
  • 00:03:26.753 --> 00:03:28.788
  • Now, you've gotta understand,the devil understands this, so
  • 00:03:28.821 --> 00:03:31.724
  • he says, "If I am going to besuccessful in moving you away
  • 00:03:31.758 --> 00:03:36.396
  • from the will of God for yourlife and keeping you away from
  • 00:03:36.429 --> 00:03:38.631
  • the will of God for your life,somehow or another, I've got to
  • 00:03:38.665 --> 00:03:41.734
  • trigger some negative emotionsthat you won't deal with."
  • 00:03:41.768 --> 00:03:47.573
  • You know, when you're in herepraising God and praying and
  • 00:03:47.607 --> 00:03:51.210
  • confessing the Word, you'retriggering godly emotions, and
  • 00:03:51.244 --> 00:03:54.814
  • those godly emotions will moveyou closer and closer to the
  • 00:03:54.847 --> 00:03:57.617
  • blessings of God, and we try toget you to learn how to live in
  • 00:03:57.650 --> 00:04:00.853
  • that because you get closer andcloser to understandin' the will
  • 00:04:00.887 --> 00:04:03.923
  • of God for your life.
  • 00:04:03.956 --> 00:04:06.326
  • But the same thing is true--theopposite is true that, when
  • 00:04:06.359 --> 00:04:09.162
  • negative emotions are triggered,if you allow them, they will
  • 00:04:09.195 --> 00:04:13.933
  • move you farther and fartheraway from the designed will and
  • 00:04:13.966 --> 00:04:18.271
  • purpose for your life, and youcould be like a step away from
  • 00:04:18.304 --> 00:04:21.841
  • understanding more about yourlife than ever before, and it
  • 00:04:21.874 --> 00:04:25.211
  • seems like every time you getclose to it, there's some kind
  • 00:04:25.244 --> 00:04:27.914
  • of circumstance that triggersa negative emotion, and then,
  • 00:04:27.947 --> 00:04:31.718
  • because you don't know how todeal with it or you were told
  • 00:04:31.751 --> 00:04:34.153
  • you can't deal with it, thenthat negative feeling pushes you
  • 00:04:34.187 --> 00:04:38.124
  • farther away from the placewhere God wants you to be.
  • 00:04:38.157 --> 00:04:41.761
  • And so now it becomes veryimportant, especially in this
  • 00:04:41.794 --> 00:04:44.964
  • day and time, for you tounderstand how to deal with your
  • 00:04:44.997 --> 00:04:48.201
  • negative feelings, how to dealwith your negative emotions,
  • 00:04:48.234 --> 00:04:53.606
  • what to do whenthings are triggered.
  • 00:04:53.639 --> 00:04:55.742
  • And, again, I'm notsaying that you won't have
  • 00:04:55.775 --> 00:04:57.677
  • negative emotions.
  • 00:04:57.710 --> 00:04:59.312
  • I'm not saying thatanger won't come.
  • 00:04:59.345 --> 00:05:00.913
  • I'm not saying that all theseweird things that have come in
  • 00:05:00.947 --> 00:05:03.649
  • your life--I'm notsaying that won't happen.
  • 00:05:03.683 --> 00:05:05.785
  • What I am saying is, when ithappens as a Christian, do you
  • 00:05:05.818 --> 00:05:09.355
  • understand what to do to takeauthority over it and to master
  • 00:05:09.389 --> 00:05:13.426
  • it so you won'tbe mastered by it?
  • 00:05:13.459 --> 00:05:16.662
  • Because a lot of times peopleend up in places in their lives,
  • 00:05:16.696 --> 00:05:19.866
  • and they ask the question,"How did I get there?
  • 00:05:19.899 --> 00:05:22.769
  • You know, I was delivered fromcocaine, and now I'm back
  • 00:05:22.802 --> 00:05:24.771
  • in cocaine."
  • 00:05:24.804 --> 00:05:26.339
  • You were delivered fromsleepin' around, and now you're
  • 00:05:26.372 --> 00:05:28.341
  • sleepin' around.
  • 00:05:28.374 --> 00:05:30.042
  • You were delivered from a wholelot of things, and it was a
  • 00:05:30.076 --> 00:05:32.445
  • circumstance that triggered thatnegative emotion that you've
  • 00:05:32.478 --> 00:05:35.448
  • never dealt with that keepsmoving you away from the will of
  • 00:05:35.481 --> 00:05:39.352
  • God for your life.
  • 00:05:39.385 --> 00:05:41.454
  • And I am telling you thatGod did not create you to be
  • 00:05:41.487 --> 00:05:44.690
  • mastered by your life.
  • 00:05:44.724 --> 00:05:46.592
  • He created you to master yourlife, and I am telling you,
  • 00:05:46.626 --> 00:05:50.730
  • you can.
  • 00:05:50.763 --> 00:05:52.265
  • So you must take chargeover your negative emotions.
  • 00:05:52.298 --> 00:05:55.401
  • Your negative emotions may bethe reason why you keep
  • 00:05:55.435 --> 00:05:57.437
  • gettin' fired.
  • 00:05:57.470 --> 00:05:58.871
  • Your negative emotions may bethe reason why it keeps you from
  • 00:05:58.905 --> 00:06:00.873
  • promotions, it keeps youfrom jobs, it keeps you from
  • 00:06:00.907 --> 00:06:03.576
  • relationships, it keepsyou--Satan knows this.
  • 00:06:03.609 --> 00:06:08.181
  • He knows that, if you can't dealwith your negative emotions, he
  • 00:06:08.214 --> 00:06:11.417
  • can move you away from the willof God, away from the blessings
  • 00:06:11.451 --> 00:06:14.387
  • of God, and then we get arevelation coming to our church
  • 00:06:14.420 --> 00:06:19.492
  • that we can master our emotions,and we cannot ignore this
  • 00:06:19.525 --> 00:06:22.295
  • because God is obviously tryingto take us to a place that's
  • 00:06:22.328 --> 00:06:27.033
  • gonna satisfy your thirst ofunderstandin' the will and
  • 00:06:27.066 --> 00:06:30.336
  • purpose for your life.
  • 00:06:30.369 --> 00:06:33.206
  • In fact, I believe that thereare some gifts and anointings on
  • 00:06:33.239 --> 00:06:36.876
  • the inside of you that, as theworld gets darker and darker,
  • 00:06:36.909 --> 00:06:40.213
  • God's gonna begin to summon andturn on some of those anointings
  • 00:06:40.246 --> 00:06:43.049
  • and gifts some of you didn'teven know you had, praise God.
  • 00:06:43.082 --> 00:06:47.520
  • But if you can harness the rightemotions and if you can work
  • 00:06:47.553 --> 00:06:50.756
  • towards being emotionallystable--I tell you what: What a
  • 00:06:50.790 --> 00:06:55.828
  • gift it is to walk in meekness.
  • 00:06:55.862 --> 00:06:59.098
  • What a gift it is to walk inself-control that, when this
  • 00:06:59.131 --> 00:07:02.969
  • negative emotion comes, and inthe past, you would normally go
  • 00:07:03.002 --> 00:07:05.972
  • off or do somethin' stupid thatwould end you in jail or in--and
  • 00:07:06.005 --> 00:07:09.008
  • you don't do that anymore, andyou recognize, "I am not the
  • 00:07:09.041 --> 00:07:12.278
  • same person."
  • 00:07:12.311 --> 00:07:14.780
  • Why?
  • 00:07:14.814 --> 00:07:16.682
  • "Because I now can take chargeof what used to take charge of
  • 00:07:16.716 --> 00:07:19.018
  • my life."
  • 00:07:19.051 --> 00:07:20.853
  • If you understand that,say, "Amen," somebody.
  • 00:07:20.887 --> 00:07:25.358
  • And so we see Jesus, inRomans chapter 8 and 6.
  • 00:07:25.391 --> 00:07:29.495
  • Romans 8 and 6, says, "To becarnally minded will lead you to
  • 00:07:29.529 --> 00:07:32.198
  • death, but to be spirituallyminded will lead you to life
  • 00:07:32.231 --> 00:07:35.902
  • and peace."
  • 00:07:35.935 --> 00:07:37.436
  • What does it mean to bea carnal-minded person?
  • 00:07:37.470 --> 00:07:39.272
  • That means you are allowing yoursenses, which you can see, hear,
  • 00:07:39.305 --> 00:07:43.009
  • taste, touch, feel.
  • 00:07:43.042 --> 00:07:44.644
  • You're allowing those thingsthat God gave to you--he gave
  • 00:07:44.677 --> 00:07:47.113
  • you those senses to enjoy life,but he didn't give you those
  • 00:07:47.146 --> 00:07:49.815
  • senses to govern andto dominate your life.
  • 00:07:49.849 --> 00:07:53.386
  • You see somethin' or on thex-ray, and, all of a sudden, it
  • 00:07:53.419 --> 00:07:56.689
  • dominates your thinkin', itdominates your mind, you go to
  • 00:07:56.722 --> 00:07:58.791
  • bed thinkin' about it, youget up thinkin' about it.
  • 00:07:58.824 --> 00:08:00.593
  • No, he gave it to you so you cansee it, but not to be dominated
  • 00:08:00.626 --> 00:08:02.995
  • by it, and you can't bedominated by your senses.
  • 00:08:03.029 --> 00:08:07.066
  • You've got to know, "I'mnot moved by what I see.
  • 00:08:07.099 --> 00:08:09.802
  • I'm not moved by whatI feel, glory to God.
  • 00:08:09.835 --> 00:08:11.804
  • I'm not moved by what I hear.
  • 00:08:11.837 --> 00:08:14.240
  • I am moved by the Word of theliving God, in spite of what I
  • 00:08:14.273 --> 00:08:17.577
  • see, in spite of what I feel,in spite of what I hear."
  • 00:08:17.610 --> 00:08:21.614
  • And let me throw this in.
  • 00:08:21.647 --> 00:08:23.182
  • Nothin' happensuntil you say it.
  • 00:08:23.215 --> 00:08:27.653
  • You gotta learn how to speakto those negative emotions.
  • 00:08:30.323 --> 00:08:32.992
  • You gotta do like Daviddid, "So bless the Lord."
  • 00:08:33.025 --> 00:08:36.429
  • That means, when you don't feellike blessin' the Lord, but you
  • 00:08:36.462 --> 00:08:38.431
  • know that there's power inpraise," you gotta speak to
  • 00:08:38.464 --> 00:08:41.267
  • yourself in psalms and hymnsand spiritual psalms, and you've
  • 00:08:41.300 --> 00:08:45.071
  • gotta say--I know you don't feellike doin' it, but we don't live
  • 00:08:45.104 --> 00:08:48.207
  • our life by how we feel.
  • 00:08:48.240 --> 00:08:49.875
  • We live our life by thegovernment of the Word of God,
  • 00:08:49.909 --> 00:08:53.412
  • and if God say to doit, we're gonna do it.
  • 00:08:53.446 --> 00:08:55.948
  • You've been redeemed, "So letthe redeemed of the Lord say
  • 00:08:55.982 --> 00:08:58.584
  • so," not 'cause you feel likeit--because you know that's the
  • 00:08:58.618 --> 00:09:01.854
  • thing to do, and it's time tono longer be hindered by how
  • 00:09:01.887 --> 00:09:08.961
  • you feel.
  • 00:09:08.995 --> 00:09:11.464
  • You can control 'em.
  • 00:09:11.497 --> 00:09:14.333
  • God's given you theauthority to do so, amen.
  • 00:09:14.367 --> 00:09:18.704
  • So let's begin.
  • 00:09:21.807 --> 00:09:23.542
  • What is depression?
  • 00:09:23.576 --> 00:09:25.478
  • Here's how we've defined it:Depression is feelings that come
  • 00:09:25.511 --> 00:09:29.915
  • from thinking thoughtsthat weigh you down,
  • 00:09:29.949 --> 00:09:34.420
  • feelings--depressionis a feeling.
  • 00:09:34.453 --> 00:09:37.390
  • Depression is an emotion.
  • 00:09:37.423 --> 00:09:39.392
  • It comes from thoughts, or itcomes from a way of thinkin'
  • 00:09:39.425 --> 00:09:43.229
  • that weighs you down.
  • 00:09:43.262 --> 00:09:45.965
  • What have you beenthinkin' about lately?
  • 00:09:45.998 --> 00:09:49.268
  • What thoughts that you keephangin' onto that just keep
  • 00:09:49.301 --> 00:09:53.706
  • weighin' you down?
  • 00:09:53.739 --> 00:09:56.842
  • What hurtful thoughts you keephangin' onto, fearful thoughts
  • 00:09:56.876 --> 00:10:00.112
  • you keep hangin' onto,condemning thoughts that you
  • 00:10:00.146 --> 00:10:02.248
  • keep hangin' onto, andthey weigh you down?
  • 00:10:02.281 --> 00:10:08.020
  • It's external pressure orstress coming from the outside,
  • 00:10:08.054 --> 00:10:12.958
  • entering into yourheart to weigh you down.
  • 00:10:12.992 --> 00:10:18.798
  • What outside things, things thatcome from outside circumstances,
  • 00:10:18.831 --> 00:10:22.468
  • stuff that's happened, thingsyou've encountered, things that
  • 00:10:22.501 --> 00:10:26.405
  • have been painful and hurtfuland dark, and they've entered
  • 00:10:26.439 --> 00:10:30.342
  • into your thinking,and it weighs you down?
  • 00:10:30.376 --> 00:10:33.345
  • Still comin' from the outside,and it weighs you down.
  • 00:10:33.379 --> 00:10:36.649
  • So if we're to deal with howyou feel, if we are to deal with
  • 00:10:36.682 --> 00:10:39.685
  • your depression, and ifdepression is defined as
  • 00:10:39.719 --> 00:10:42.555
  • feelings that come from thoughtsthat weigh you down, you have to
  • 00:10:42.588 --> 00:10:45.725
  • deal with your thinkin.
  • 00:10:45.758 --> 00:10:48.194
  • You have to deal with whatyou're thinkin' about.
  • 00:10:48.227 --> 00:10:50.696
  • Most people think in church,"Well, that's not important,"
  • 00:10:50.730 --> 00:10:53.833
  • and we wanna cover it up withsomethin', but if you're gonna
  • 00:10:53.866 --> 00:10:56.802
  • deal with how you feel, yougotta deal with how you think.
  • 00:10:56.836 --> 00:10:59.038
  • "As a man thinketh," comma,"in his heart, so is he."
  • 00:10:59.071 --> 00:11:04.310
  • "As a man thinketh--"
  • 00:11:04.343 --> 00:11:05.811
  • so how you think--how you thinkis gonna determine how you feel.
  • 00:11:05.845 --> 00:11:09.081
  • How you think is gonnadetermine, really, who you are
  • 00:11:09.115 --> 00:11:12.084
  • because you are a sum total ofhow you think, and you never
  • 00:11:12.118 --> 00:11:15.221
  • consider how you think.
  • 00:11:15.254 --> 00:11:17.556
  • And what is it that you'rethinkin' about the most?
  • 00:11:17.590 --> 00:11:20.292
  • What thoughts are you holdin'on the most, thoughts that came
  • 00:11:20.326 --> 00:11:23.229
  • from circumstances that happened30 years ago, and you're still
  • 00:11:23.262 --> 00:11:25.765
  • hangin' onto those thoughts?
  • 00:11:25.798 --> 00:11:27.967
  • And now it's entered into yourheart, and it's weighing
  • 00:11:28.000 --> 00:11:30.436
  • you down.
  • 00:11:30.469 --> 00:11:32.905
  • Somebody says, "Well, youknow, Brother Dollar, I've been
  • 00:11:32.938 --> 00:11:35.474
  • lookin' at my thinkin' andtryin' to change my thinkin',
  • 00:11:35.508 --> 00:11:38.611
  • but I don't seem to know how tochange my thinkin'," because you
  • 00:11:38.644 --> 00:11:40.646
  • can't just try tochange your thinkin'.
  • 00:11:40.679 --> 00:11:42.548
  • The way you think hasa foundation as well.
  • 00:11:42.581 --> 00:11:45.451
  • The way you think--just like theway you feel comes from how you
  • 00:11:45.484 --> 00:11:48.254
  • think, the way you think comesfrom what you're exposin'
  • 00:11:48.287 --> 00:11:50.656
  • yourself to.
  • 00:11:50.689 --> 00:11:52.658
  • So check out what you'reexposing yourself to.
  • 00:11:52.691 --> 00:11:54.360
  • How much exposure timeare you giving God's Word?
  • 00:11:54.393 --> 00:11:59.131
  • How much exposure time are yougiving the Spirit of God, or has
  • 00:11:59.165 --> 00:12:03.736
  • he been replacedby somethin' else?
  • 00:12:03.769 --> 00:12:06.205
  • Boy, I never would've dreamedthat I would be in the middle of
  • 00:12:06.238 --> 00:12:09.074
  • an idolatrous generation such asthis one where we keep trying to
  • 00:12:09.108 --> 00:12:15.948
  • replace God with something else.
  • 00:12:15.981 --> 00:12:18.184
  • We just can't believethat he can do it.
  • 00:12:18.217 --> 00:12:22.922
  • So even when it comes to theemotion of depression, we wanna
  • 00:12:22.955 --> 00:12:25.457
  • replace God, we wannareplace his Word.
  • 00:12:25.491 --> 00:12:28.794
  • We wanna say, "Well, you know, Iknow God can do it, but I'm gon'
  • 00:12:28.828 --> 00:12:31.564
  • go see me a therapist, and I'mmago get me some antidepressants."
  • 00:12:31.597 --> 00:12:35.401
  • And we replace God with what theworld uses, and we have the most
  • 00:12:35.434 --> 00:12:40.472
  • powerful antidote ever todepression, but we just can't
  • 00:12:40.506 --> 00:12:44.710
  • believe it, so we go andborrow from the world.
  • 00:12:44.743 --> 00:12:50.249
  • He's a healer of your emotionalsituations, but you won't
  • 00:12:50.282 --> 00:12:54.086
  • trust him.
  • 00:12:54.119 --> 00:12:56.956
  • He's the deliverer, butyou won't trust him.
  • 00:12:56.989 --> 00:13:00.826
  • "Well, Brother Dollar, you oughtnot be tellin' people that."
  • 00:13:00.860 --> 00:13:02.728
  • I am gonna tell you that becausemy God's greater than that
  • 00:13:02.761 --> 00:13:04.563
  • other stuff.
  • 00:13:04.597 --> 00:13:06.599
  • He's greater than that otherstuff, and I tell ya, you need
  • 00:13:06.632 --> 00:13:09.702
  • to--you rememberthe old Baptist song?
  • 00:13:09.735 --> 00:13:12.037
  • ♪ Try Jesus, he's all right ♪
  • 00:13:12.071 --> 00:13:14.006
  • ♪ Try Jesus ♪
  • 00:13:14.039 --> 00:13:15.608
  • ♪ I done tried him,and he's all right ♪
  • 00:13:15.641 --> 00:13:17.776
  • ♪ He's a doctorin the sick room ♪
  • 00:13:17.810 --> 00:13:20.646
  • ♪ He's all right ♪
  • 00:13:20.679 --> 00:13:23.048
  • Creflo: Y'all know what I'mtalkin' about, boy, that--y'all
  • 00:13:23.082 --> 00:13:24.617
  • felt that thing.
  • 00:13:24.650 --> 00:13:26.085
  • It's still got thejuice on it, amen.
  • 00:13:26.118 --> 00:13:27.453
  • Now, if you're a millennial,you're like, "What?"
  • 00:13:27.486 --> 00:13:30.189
  • We always knew the right thing,but it's gotta come down to us
  • 00:13:32.391 --> 00:13:35.294
  • believing it and doing it.
  • 00:13:35.327 --> 00:13:37.229
  • Your right believing is gonnaeat with your right living.
  • 00:13:37.263 --> 00:13:39.598
  • You believe right,you gon' live right.
  • 00:13:39.632 --> 00:13:41.500
  • You believe wrong,you gon' live wrong.
  • 00:13:41.533 --> 00:13:43.502
  • When are we gonna stop replacingGod with something or somebody?
  • 00:13:43.535 --> 00:13:49.675
  • That's called idolatry.
  • 00:13:49.708 --> 00:13:52.945
  • When are we gonna let himbe enough, and trust him?
  • 00:13:52.978 --> 00:13:58.050
  • And how you do that, if you'llexpose your life to what God has
  • 00:13:58.083 --> 00:14:02.755
  • to say, if you expose yourlife to God's Word, then that
  • 00:14:02.788 --> 00:14:06.225
  • exposure is gonna producegodly thinkin', and that godly
  • 00:14:06.258 --> 00:14:09.328
  • thinkin' is gonnaproduce godly emotions.
  • 00:14:09.361 --> 00:14:12.998
  • But if you don't think whatyou're doing and what you're
  • 00:14:13.032 --> 00:14:15.167
  • hangin' around with and whatyou're exposing yourself to, if
  • 00:14:15.200 --> 00:14:17.770
  • you don't think it's importantbecause you're workin' so hard
  • 00:14:17.803 --> 00:14:19.672
  • to be liberal, that you'renot paying attention to the
  • 00:14:19.705 --> 00:14:25.577
  • consequences of some of thosedecisions to be liberal.
  • 00:14:25.611 --> 00:14:29.281
  • You know, we wanna act like,under grace, we don't have any
  • 00:14:29.315 --> 00:14:32.885
  • boundaries, and, yet you canmake all these decisions, but
  • 00:14:32.918 --> 00:14:36.121
  • there are consequences forsome of the decisions you make.
  • 00:14:36.155 --> 00:14:39.892
  • And if you make a decision toexpose yourself to crazy things,
  • 00:14:39.925 --> 00:14:42.895
  • it's like a farmer.
  • 00:14:42.928 --> 00:14:44.330
  • This whole lifeis like a farmer.
  • 00:14:44.363 --> 00:14:45.764
  • What you sow, you gon' harvest.
  • 00:14:45.798 --> 00:14:49.435
  • So the question is,what are you sowing?
  • 00:14:49.468 --> 00:14:51.303
  • What are you doing?
  • 00:14:51.337 --> 00:14:52.705
  • What are you exposing yourselfto the most of the time?
  • 00:14:52.738 --> 00:14:55.574
  • "Well, I don't thinknothin' wrong with that.
  • 00:14:55.607 --> 00:14:58.010
  • I don't think nothing--"
  • 00:14:58.043 --> 00:14:59.445
  • You so busy tryin' to,"I don't think nothin' wrong
  • 00:14:59.478 --> 00:15:00.946
  • with this, I don't think nothin'wrong with this.
  • 00:15:00.980 --> 00:15:02.948
  • I don't think that way."
  • 00:15:02.982 --> 00:15:04.316
  • Well, I'mma give youa real easy test.
  • 00:15:04.350 --> 00:15:05.684
  • Just look at you, and then youdon't have to think something's
  • 00:15:05.718 --> 00:15:09.688
  • wrong with it.
  • 00:15:09.722 --> 00:15:11.223
  • You can look at you and checkyourself out, and you can know
  • 00:15:11.256 --> 00:15:14.460
  • somethin' must'vebeen wrong with that.
  • 00:15:14.493 --> 00:15:17.529
  • And we keep doin' it because itfeels good, but it's not workin'
  • 00:15:20.265 --> 00:15:23.602
  • any good in us.
  • 00:15:23.635 --> 00:15:25.371
  • So what are you exposingyourself to is determinin' how
  • 00:15:25.404 --> 00:15:27.573
  • you think, and your thinkin' isdeterminin' how you feel, so if
  • 00:15:27.606 --> 00:15:30.743
  • you feel depressed, thenchange the way you think.
  • 00:15:30.776 --> 00:15:33.812
  • If you're thinking thoughtsthat are weighing you down, then
  • 00:15:33.846 --> 00:15:38.517
  • change the exposure that you'rehangin' around that's producin'
  • 00:15:38.550 --> 00:15:43.989
  • those thoughts that weighyou down that's producin' the
  • 00:15:44.023 --> 00:15:46.492
  • depression, and then, once thatdepression stays there, you gon'
  • 00:15:46.525 --> 00:15:49.428
  • start makin' emotional decisionsbased on how you feel, and those
  • 00:15:49.461 --> 00:15:53.832
  • emotional decisions will callforth the actions, the habits,
  • 00:15:53.866 --> 00:15:57.236
  • and the characters that willbring you to your destination.
  • 00:15:57.269 --> 00:16:01.440
  • That's how it works.
  • 00:16:01.473 --> 00:16:03.942
  • You don't ever haveto go and be in dark.
  • 00:16:03.976 --> 00:16:05.511
  • "I don't know whymy life like it is."
  • 00:16:05.544 --> 00:16:07.546
  • I'm telling you whyyour life is like it is.
  • 00:16:07.579 --> 00:16:10.182
  • I'll tell you again.
  • 00:16:10.215 --> 00:16:11.817
  • Your life is the way it is,good or bad, because of what you
  • 00:16:11.850 --> 00:16:15.154
  • expose yourself to.
  • 00:16:15.187 --> 00:16:17.156
  • That's producin'the way you think.
  • 00:16:17.189 --> 00:16:18.690
  • That's producin'the way you feel.
  • 00:16:18.724 --> 00:16:20.125
  • That's producin' thedecisions you make.
  • 00:16:20.159 --> 00:16:22.327
  • Once you make a decision, it'san open door into a reality, so
  • 00:16:22.361 --> 00:16:24.530
  • the action now is born.
  • 00:16:24.563 --> 00:16:26.665
  • Then the habit is created, thenhabit creates you, and then that
  • 00:16:26.698 --> 00:16:29.234
  • habit creates your character,and then that character creates
  • 00:16:29.268 --> 00:16:32.171
  • your destination, and you arewhere you are based on
  • 00:16:32.204 --> 00:16:35.874
  • your exposure.
  • 00:16:35.908 --> 00:16:39.778
  • "Yep, you mean to tell me weback to havin' to get in the
  • 00:16:39.812 --> 00:16:45.350
  • Word again?"
  • 00:16:45.384 --> 00:16:47.219
  • Should've never left it.
  • 00:16:47.252 --> 00:16:49.621
  • "You mean to tell me we back tohavin' to watch what we say?"
  • 00:16:49.655 --> 00:16:52.624
  • Should've never left it.
  • 00:16:52.658 --> 00:16:56.962
  • And that is if you wanna change.
  • 00:16:56.995 --> 00:16:59.331
  • Now, hey, if you don't wannachange, and it's bad, but you
  • 00:16:59.364 --> 00:17:01.366
  • feeling good about it?
  • 00:17:01.400 --> 00:17:02.868
  • Hey, dude, here's the greatthing about your life.
  • 00:17:02.901 --> 00:17:05.471
  • You are a free, moral agent.
  • 00:17:05.504 --> 00:17:07.439
  • You can do whatever you want todo, but if you're tired of going
  • 00:17:07.473 --> 00:17:13.879
  • down that same path that endsin destruction--see, some of us
  • 00:17:13.912 --> 00:17:19.418
  • have gone down the path thatyou keep tryin' to go down.
  • 00:17:19.451 --> 00:17:22.187
  • We keep tellin' youit's a dead end.
  • 00:17:22.221 --> 00:17:25.891
  • We keep sayin', "Oh,down the wrong street?
  • 00:17:25.924 --> 00:17:29.027
  • Oh, I know where that go.
  • 00:17:29.061 --> 00:17:30.596
  • That go to a dead end."
  • 00:17:30.629 --> 00:17:32.331
  • And then you keep goin' around,"We'll I'mma turn to see.
  • 00:17:32.364 --> 00:17:36.435
  • I don't believe it,I wanna see for myself."
  • 00:17:36.468 --> 00:17:39.638
  • Got dog, I know adead end when I see it.
  • 00:17:39.671 --> 00:17:42.141
  • I got out and walkedaround the sign.
  • 00:17:42.174 --> 00:17:43.976
  • It was a cliff.
  • 00:17:44.009 --> 00:17:46.512
  • There were other cars that werewrecked at the bottom of it
  • 00:17:46.545 --> 00:17:49.615
  • because they didn'tbelieve it was a dead end."
  • 00:17:49.648 --> 00:17:53.318
  • That's exactly whatI'm tryin' to show you.
  • 00:17:53.352 --> 00:17:56.655
  • There's a path that leads tolife, and there's a path that
  • 00:17:56.688 --> 00:17:59.224
  • leads to destruction.
  • 00:17:59.258 --> 00:18:01.160
  • You keep choosing the path thatother people have gone through.
  • 00:18:01.193 --> 00:18:04.963
  • "Well, that's old-fashioned.
  • 00:18:04.997 --> 00:18:07.432
  • Y'all the baby boomers.
  • 00:18:07.466 --> 00:18:09.201
  • Y'all, that's old-fashioned."
  • 00:18:09.234 --> 00:18:11.370
  • I don't care whatkind of fashion it is.
  • 00:18:11.403 --> 00:18:13.172
  • It's still a dead end.
  • 00:18:13.205 --> 00:18:16.775
  • Sometimes your whole life canjust excel just by listening to
  • 00:18:19.645 --> 00:18:23.782
  • people who havetraveled down that path.
  • 00:18:23.815 --> 00:18:29.588
  • You don't need no revelation.
  • 00:18:29.621 --> 00:18:31.557
  • You don't even need tohear from the Holy Ghost.
  • 00:18:31.590 --> 00:18:33.559
  • You can hear from the peoplewho went down the path.
  • 00:18:33.592 --> 00:18:36.895
  • You got those little Waze, thelittle traffic things, and it
  • 00:18:41.500 --> 00:18:44.136
  • shows you, I think, it's, like,red, and it shows you when it's
  • 00:18:44.169 --> 00:18:46.104
  • got a lot of traffic, and youlook at it, it says, "Lots of
  • 00:18:46.138 --> 00:18:49.775
  • traffic, traffic not movin'"?
  • 00:18:49.808 --> 00:18:52.611
  • I don't believe it.
  • 00:18:52.644 --> 00:18:54.680
  • Isn't that whatI'm talkin' about?
  • 00:18:58.083 --> 00:18:59.651
  • "I don't believe it, I don'tbelieve that just by sayin' the
  • 00:18:59.685 --> 00:19:01.853
  • Word that somethin' gon' happen.
  • 00:19:01.887 --> 00:19:03.622
  • I don't believe just by comin'to church and gettin' some
  • 00:19:03.655 --> 00:19:05.290
  • understandin'--I don'tbelieve none of that."
  • 00:19:05.324 --> 00:19:08.760
  • And that's why you rememberyour mama used to say,
  • 00:19:08.794 --> 00:19:12.497
  • "A hard head--"
  • 00:19:12.531 --> 00:19:14.700
  • congregation:"--makes a soft behind."
  • 00:19:14.733 --> 00:19:17.603
  • Creflo: Okay, I think yousee where we're comin' from.
  • 00:19:23.709 --> 00:19:27.412
  • Proverbs 12:25, the New KingJames Version, I want you to see
  • 00:19:27.446 --> 00:19:32.217
  • this before we get started.
  • 00:19:32.251 --> 00:19:34.086
  • Proverbs 12:25.
  • 00:19:34.119 --> 00:19:35.988
  • Somebody said, "Get started?
  • 00:19:36.021 --> 00:19:37.356
  • Ain't you started?"
  • 00:19:37.389 --> 00:19:38.890
  • No, it take me about30 minutes to crank up.
  • 00:19:38.924 --> 00:19:42.094
  • Look at this Scripture.
  • 00:19:42.127 --> 00:19:43.862
  • I wanna show--it tells uswhere depression comes from.
  • 00:19:43.895 --> 00:19:46.598
  • Let's read it out loud together.
  • 00:19:46.632 --> 00:19:48.900
  • Ready, read, "Anxiety inthe heart of a man causes
  • 00:19:48.934 --> 00:19:54.673
  • depression, but agood word makes it glad."
  • 00:19:54.706 --> 00:19:59.511
  • I'm tryin' to give you agood Word this mornin'.
  • 00:19:59.544 --> 00:20:02.381
  • Anxiety and--or anotherway to say it, "worry."
  • 00:20:02.414 --> 00:20:08.120
  • Worry is negative meditationon the wrong thing.
  • 00:20:08.153 --> 00:20:15.494
  • The thoughts, the feelings thatcome from the thoughts that
  • 00:20:15.527 --> 00:20:17.996
  • weigh you down, that's worry.
  • 00:20:18.030 --> 00:20:21.533
  • It's meditating on the negativething, and he says, "Anxiety or
  • 00:20:21.566 --> 00:20:27.205
  • worry in the heart of aman will cause depression."
  • 00:20:27.239 --> 00:20:35.681
  • What is it, 1 Peter 5 and 7?
  • 00:20:35.714 --> 00:20:37.949
  • He says, "Take the anxiety, theworry, and the care, and cast it
  • 00:20:37.983 --> 00:20:44.623
  • on God because hecares for you."
  • 00:20:44.656 --> 00:20:48.527
  • Again, we say, "Idon't believe that."
  • 00:20:48.560 --> 00:20:50.862
  • And so you keep it, and thelonger you keep it, the more
  • 00:20:50.896 --> 00:20:54.499
  • potential you have of itweighing you down, of it
  • 00:20:54.533 --> 00:20:58.637
  • weighing you down.
  • 00:20:58.670 --> 00:21:00.872
  • So now let's look at some causesof depression this morning
  • 00:21:00.906 --> 00:21:04.710
  • because most depressed peoplehave experienced some kind of
  • 00:21:04.743 --> 00:21:07.379
  • trauma which has broughtsorrow into their lives.
  • 00:21:07.412 --> 00:21:12.451
  • Now, I wanna show you thecauses, but then I wanna show
  • 00:21:12.484 --> 00:21:15.087
  • you some Scriptures that willencourage you even in the midst
  • 00:21:15.120 --> 00:21:17.222
  • of the cause, so go to Psalms40, verses 1 through 3, in the
  • 00:21:17.255 --> 00:21:22.361
  • New Living Translation, Psalms40, verses 1 through 3, in the
  • 00:21:22.394 --> 00:21:27.132
  • New Living Translation.
  • 00:21:27.165 --> 00:21:29.267
  • So I'mma give you five causesof depression, and I want you to
  • 00:21:29.301 --> 00:21:31.636
  • build your guardup against it now.
  • 00:21:31.670 --> 00:21:34.339
  • This is only reason I'm givin'it to you so you can build your
  • 00:21:34.373 --> 00:21:36.441
  • guard up against it.
  • 00:21:36.475 --> 00:21:38.643
  • Okay, the first causeof depression, sorrow, sorrow.
  • 00:21:38.677 --> 00:21:46.351
  • Sorrow can causedepression in your life.
  • 00:21:46.385 --> 00:21:50.522
  • Psalms 40, says, "I waitedpatiently for the Lord
  • 00:21:50.555 --> 00:21:53.458
  • to help me.
  • 00:21:53.492 --> 00:21:55.260
  • He turned to meand heard my cry."
  • 00:21:55.293 --> 00:21:59.965
  • "I waited patiently for him tohelp me, and he turned to me.
  • 00:21:59.998 --> 00:22:03.435
  • He lifted me out of the pit ofdespair, out of the mud and out
  • 00:22:03.468 --> 00:22:09.307
  • of the mire.
  • 00:22:09.341 --> 00:22:11.143
  • He set my feet on solid ground,and he steadied me as I
  • 00:22:11.176 --> 00:22:18.583
  • walked along."
  • 00:22:18.617 --> 00:22:19.985
  • Man, that's God walkin'with you, right?
  • 00:22:20.018 --> 00:22:22.387
  • Look at verse 3.
  • 00:22:22.421 --> 00:22:24.022
  • He says, "He has given me a newsong to sing, a hymn of praise
  • 00:22:24.055 --> 00:22:29.194
  • to our God.
  • 00:22:29.227 --> 00:22:31.096
  • Many will see what hehas done and be amazed.
  • 00:22:31.129 --> 00:22:34.599
  • They will put theirtrust in the Lord."
  • 00:22:34.633 --> 00:22:38.270
  • So, ladies and gentlemen, I'mnot saying that you won't ever
  • 00:22:38.303 --> 00:22:42.140
  • see sorrow.
  • 00:22:42.174 --> 00:22:45.577
  • I am saying that, when sorrowcomes, you can turn to God and
  • 00:22:45.610 --> 00:22:50.415
  • trust him because he'lllift you up out of despair.
  • 00:22:50.449 --> 00:22:55.654
  • He'll lift you up out of a pit.
  • 00:22:55.687 --> 00:22:58.457
  • But sorrow, if you don't attackit--and like I said before, the
  • 00:22:58.490 --> 00:23:03.495
  • way to deal with sorrow is,if you're dealing with those
  • 00:23:03.528 --> 00:23:06.631
  • thoughts of sorrow, I'd goto Psalms 40, and I'd read
  • 00:23:06.665 --> 00:23:10.001
  • Psalms 40, and it tellsme what God would do.
  • 00:23:10.035 --> 00:23:12.838
  • If I turned my attention there,then he delivers me up out of
  • 00:23:12.871 --> 00:23:16.241
  • the sorrow.
  • 00:23:16.274 --> 00:23:18.176
  • It turns my--the Bible talksabout "Attend to my word.
  • 00:23:18.210 --> 00:23:22.347
  • Attend to my word."
  • 00:23:22.380 --> 00:23:24.349
  • Give attention--give attentionto the Word rather than giving
  • 00:23:24.382 --> 00:23:26.685
  • attention to the situationthat caused the sorrow.
  • 00:23:26.718 --> 00:23:31.189
  • Sorrow causes depression.
  • 00:23:31.223 --> 00:23:33.959
  • It is a cause of depression,but I'll go a step further.
  • 00:23:33.992 --> 00:23:38.196
  • I've met people who've beenin sorrow for a long time.
  • 00:23:38.230 --> 00:23:42.200
  • I've met people who would cometo church, shout at church, get
  • 00:23:42.234 --> 00:23:44.569
  • happy at church, go home, sitthere for about five minutes and
  • 00:23:44.603 --> 00:23:47.372
  • think about all that otherstuff and be filled with sorrow.
  • 00:23:47.405 --> 00:23:51.710
  • And instead of you bein' filledwith sorrow, be filled with
  • 00:23:51.743 --> 00:23:53.845
  • his Word.
  • 00:23:53.879 --> 00:23:56.047
  • If you'll be filled with hisWord, praise God, the sorrow
  • 00:23:56.081 --> 00:23:59.384
  • won't be able to attach itselfto your life and maintain
  • 00:23:59.417 --> 00:24:03.989
  • depression, okay?
  • 00:24:04.022 --> 00:24:06.691
  • Number two, I want you to go toPsalms 3:3, in the King James,
  • 00:24:06.725 --> 00:24:13.131
  • Psalms 3:3, number 2,second cause of depression,
  • 00:24:13.164 --> 00:24:18.803
  • disappointment orunfulfilled expectations,
  • 00:24:18.837 --> 00:24:23.708
  • disappointment, which isunfulfilled expectations.
  • 00:24:23.742 --> 00:24:29.714
  • You become disappointed whenwhat you expected to happen
  • 00:24:29.748 --> 00:24:33.418
  • didn't happen.
  • 00:24:33.451 --> 00:24:35.587
  • You're disappointed when youreally built yourself up and you
  • 00:24:35.620 --> 00:24:39.024
  • expected this thingto take place.
  • 00:24:39.057 --> 00:24:40.859
  • It didn't take place.
  • 00:24:40.892 --> 00:24:43.028
  • Now, I want you to beaware of somethin'.
  • 00:24:43.061 --> 00:24:45.330
  • Be careful not to set yourselfup for disappointment because
  • 00:24:45.363 --> 00:24:50.969

  • You've got to adaptthis way of thinking.
  • 00:25:11.656 --> 00:25:14.993
  • You've got to come to the pointwhere I don't expect anything,
